This version comes with black stonewashed Copper handle scales supported by black steel liners with a polished Damascus stainless steel blade.
Brand new, direct from CIVIVI.
Blade: A fully flat ground, beautifully polished Chinese Damascus (9Cr18MoV stainless base steel with HRC near 60) blade rides on a caged ceramic ball bearing pivot for ultra smooth, fast deployment via the minimalist top flipper tab that is fully hidden in the open position. The modified Sheepsfoot blade is slim yet robust with a full length sweeping belly for slicing performance. A subtle choil allows for full sharpening and added control in fine tasks. The sheen gives the blade a classy look and a rounded triangle blade hole lends to Isham’s signature style. Like many of Isham’s designs the Mckenna has a negative blade angle that is more ergonomic and efficient for general cutting tasks.
Handle: Hefty copper handles are slim and contoured with organic lines for which Isham is known and delivered in a black stonewashed finish for a rugged, handsome look. Black Stainless steel liners offers a solid foundation for durability with a simple and reliable liner lock mechanism for security in use. The ergonomic, open back handle design provides plenty of security and comfort for extended use. The handles are completed with black stainless steel hardware and a matching copper back spacer.
Carries via a reversible, tip-up, stainless steel deep carry pocket clip.
Chinese Damascus: Damascus offers the performance of a modern steel while delivering a unique look from the pattern welded layers and acid etched finish. Often available in multiple patterns, Damascus gives a knife a striking and singular look. The core of this blade is 9Cr18MoV stainless steel hardened to around 60 HRC for solid cutting performance.
